CELTIC will bid to roar into the second half of the campaign with a victory when the curtain goes up at Pittodrie this afternoon.
Ange Postecoglou has only known success against Aberdeen since he arrived at Parkhead in June last year.
Three league games last season yielded a maximum nine points with seven goals scored and they kicked off the current crusade with a 2-0 success over Jim Goodwin’s team when Stephen Welsh headed in the opening goal in only three minutes to get the league campaign off to a perfect start.
PARADISE…Filipe Jota celebrates a strike at Parkhead.
Filipe Jota made certain with a spectacular run and drive into the roof of the net to demonstrate he had lost none of the skills that made him a favourite with the Hoops fans and worthy of a £6.5million permanent move to the champions after his impressive loan term from Benfica.
